Allen M. Steele’s most recent story for us, “The Emperor of Mars,” picked up the 2010 Readers’ Award for Best Novelette.

Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine: 30th Anniversary Anthology

e-readers Zinio Amazon Kindle Sony Barnes & Noble Fictionwise

"A truly extraordinary sampler of tales.... Every piece in this superlative collection is a nugget of pure science fiction gold."

-Publishers Weekly, starred review

This anniversary anthology presented in chronological order showcases 30 years of excellent stories published in the legendary magazine, Asimov’s Science Fiction. Asimov’s Science Fiction was founded in 1977. As one of science fiction’s most influential and prolific writers, Isaac Asimov wanted to provide a home for new SF writers—a new magazine for young writers could break into. Asimov’s Science Fiction remains that home, as well as the publisher of some of the field’s best known authors.
